Be Careful Who You Trust
One of the hardest things to face in this industry is the fact that you can hardly trust anyone. Now I'm not saying this to be pessimistic. What I mean is that we fall prey to those we think have our best interest at heart. As you move forward in your career, I advise you to keep all matters of personal and business concerns private or specific to only those involved in a particular situation. As much as we like to promote, we must be aware of what and who we are promoting to. My experience has been that people around you pretend to support you while deep within they are jealous or envious of your life and your success. This is true even if you have helped them with their career or business. I've learned to only discuss things with people that directly concern them. Anything else is off limits. I also advise you to curtail the number of people who have unlimited access to you via phone or email because most people are just trying to infiltrate your circle to make sure you are not successful. This is truly one of the not so attractive things about our industry but I think this is just a fact of life. So be sure to reassess every relationship and affiliation. Remember to keep it all business. Find your friends else where. You may have like minded people you want to communicate with but again only communicate about the things you are working on. Not everyone has your best interest at heart. As we rise in our careers our circles get smaller and smaller. Just be careful who you trust. Now continue wisely toward your success.
